Skywatch Friday - Lake Taneycomo

On the left is the Table Rock Dam which backs up the White River into Table Rock Lake.  This holds back water and controls flooding while the flow of water turns turbines and generates electricity. On this side of the dam cold water is released from the bottom of the dam and creates the cold water Lake Taneycomo, essentially a very deep fast running river.  The Missouri Department of Conservation operates a fish hatchery that keeps the the lake stocked with trout, permitting trout fishing to be enjoyed year round.  Slick, eh?
